André Brasilier is a French painter, born in Saumur, France, who studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Art in Paris. In 1952, he received the Florence Blumenthal Award and the Prix de Rome for painting the following year. He resided at the villa Medicis in Rome from 1954 to 1957. He now lives and works in Paris.

He creates canvasses that are a blend of abstraction, expressionism, and something distinctly his own. His works often feature themes and motifs like horses, nature, music, and women and more particularly his wife and muse, Chantal. In an intimate communion with nature, he draws his inspiration from its language, sounds, and colors, thus revealing the natural beauty of our surroundings.

Brasilier had his first retrospective of one hundred artworks from 1950-1980 at the Château de Chenonceau in 1980 and a retrospective exhibition at the Musée Picasso-Château Grimaldi in Antibes, the French Riviera, in 1988. He has since been honored with major retrospectives both at Russia’s renowned State Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg in 2005 and at the Museum Haus Ludwig für Kunstausstellungen Saarlois in Germany in 2007.
